Hope for Holly
Holly is my vibrant 8 yr old daughter that suffered an aneurysm and then it caused a seizure. She had to have CPR preformed twice and there was minimal pulse for a few minutes. She was care flighted out to Children's hospital here in Dallas. When she got here, it was touch and go and her chances were unknown. She managed to pull through like the fighter she is. They did an emergency stent to drain fluid and reduce swelling in her brain. She was medically paralyzed and had a number of medications to help control her blood pressure. Her lungs and heart are weak and she has a breathing tube and will for a few days. After weaning her off certain medications were were able to see if she could respond. We didn't know if she was still in there but she is!! She has kept herself stable enough for 3D scans of her brain and a look into what to do next. The CAT scans showed she has a cluster of abnormal vessels at the base of her brain that need to be dealt with. Right now we are taking it one small step at a time and are greatful that our sweet Holly is still here with us.
Almost 3 weeks home and off to our first doctors visit. So much better at home and I swear she is doing better. We are weaning her off the vent more and hopefully soon she will be off it completely.
We are finally going home tomorrow morning! I cant even begin to explain how I feel but my baby girl can come home. We have been here for 6 months and at times there was no light at the end of this tunnel but we are in the home stretch. We still have a long ways to go but coming home is the first step. Thank you to everyone
